About Me

Software Engineer - Specializing in iOS
I am a software engineer based in Alton, Hampshire; specializing in iOS development. I have extensive experience working in both Swift and Objective-C with a high level of proficiency in both, having worked in the field for over four and a half years now.

During my time as an iOS developer I have learned vital core programming concepts such as OOP, POP, TDD etc... I have further honed these core skills as well as my knowledge of the iOS APIs over my 4.5 years experience and the commercially released applications listed below are a testament to this.

As well as the experience I have picked up, I also hold a Higher National Diploma in IT Systems and Principles, at distinction grade. Whilst studying for this I also gained a foundation understanding of ASP.NET and C# which I further developed in my free time, along with Android, to the point where I can consider myself a full stack engineer.

I work full time as an iOS Engineer for digi.me, a intuitive start-up that strives to give people back control of their data. Over my career I have been privileged to work alongside industry-leading teams to develop some world-class mobile applications.

As expected, I am also a keen coder outside of work, I am a director Militia Softworks, a freelancing company, developing a handful of my own apps which I hope to release in the not too distant future. In my spare time I of course enjoy coding, but am also a keen gamer and enjoy gaming with friends where time permits.

I am always open to hearing about the possible next step in my career, so if you have a position that might interest me, please do get in contact!
